Default No opengl games

When i try to play opengl games (tremulous, openarena, gl-117, nexuiz, ...) i obtain only a black screen. I can hear the music so i think the game plays fine but it is not displayed. I need to open a tty to kill the process or use ALT-CTRL-DEL to restart X.
I don't know what to try ...
I attached nvidia-bug-report.log
Thanks

Eric

Does this problem persist if you're not using the Composite extension?

If you mean to add
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection
to xorg.conf.
Yes i tried and the problem persists.

I'd like to see the output from glxinfo and xdpyinfo.

Also, was the bug report that you attached generated while the problem was present?

Thanks,
Lonni

Please see attached files.
I'm not sure the previous nvidia-bug-report.log was generated while the problem was present so i generate a new one with openarena running with black screen in X session and generate it from TTY.

Thanks. Unfortunately, I'm not seeing anything unusual in the new information.

Does this problem also persist with more trivial OpenGL apps, such as glxgears?

The problem seems to be mainly with full screen game so no problem with glxgear in fullscreen mode.
Is it possible that my card is not enough powerfull for this type of games ??

Are you stating that if you run the same games in a window rather than full screen, the problem no longer reproduces?

No it depends for some game it's true and for other not. For example if i launch ./mania_drive.sh --window --mni simple.mni in a window and directly in a circuit not passing throw the menu it plays but if i try the same in full screen i have a black screen. For tremulous i have a black screen in window or in full screen.
I t could be also related to another problem i have submitted with no solution : in googleearth i just have the atmosphere circle with nothing in it.

No answer ?
I think this problem is difficult to solve as the last one with with googleearth.
I'm planning to change my graphic card with a new one geforce 6200 agp. This change could help ? If i change my card will it be automatically detected by the system and the nvidia driver ?
Thanks
